Subject: Another copy of this film is on the archive
There is another print of this EB film in the Prelinger Archives, in two parts:

http://www.archive.org/details/UniqueCo1959

http://www.archive.org/details/UniqueCo1959_2

Makes obvious the nature of older film in losing its coloration. Using software I have been able to somewhat "fix" older footage, but once a given color tone is completely gone, it cannot be fixed. In the case of this print, the yellow is almost completely gone. I'm glad there's a better quality print to compare it to. This also explains the urgency to save old fims before they become too faded out.
